The project will be installed 15 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts and will feature 62 units of the Haliade-X 13 MW turbine. Energy generation is expected to start in 2023.

Vineyard Wind 1 recently became the first offshore wind farm in the USA to achieve a financial close, which enabled Vineyard Wine and GE to achieve this contractual milestone.

John Lavelle, President and CEO of GE Renewable’s Offshore Wind business, said: “We’re pleased to supply the first utility-scale offshore installation in the US, increasing the potential of the turbine to generate more power for our customer. Our Haliade-X technology combined with our innovative digital capabilities means that GE is well positioned to support the growth of offshore wind in the US and globally.”
